Tottenham demand €40m for eight-goal misfit as Bundesliga side prepare January bid

Posted by

Tottenham Hotspur reportedly want €40m for Heung-Min Son with Wolfsburg still keen to sign him despite missing out in the summer transfer window.

The South Korean international arrived at White Hart Lane last summer, but after being limited to just 13 Premier League starts and with eight goals in 42 appearances in all competitions, it hasn’t quite been the first year he had planned in England.

While he has shown his desire to commit himself to Mauricio Pochettino’s side this week, it may not be enough as speculation continues to link him with a return to the Bundesliga.

According to Bild, Wolfsburg offered €32m to Spurs prior to the summer transfer window deadline, but saw their interest rebuffed by the Premier League outfit.

It’s claimed in the report that they will look for something closer to €40m, which will be a profit of around €10m on the fee that they signed him for.

Having fared better in Germany with 49 goals in 165 appearances for Hamburg and Bayer Leverkusen, there is an argument to suggest that the 24-year-old is better suited to that league and should consider a return.

However, he will undoubtedly hope to prove himself in north London rather than move on just 18 months after arriving, but time will tell as to whether or not he gets the opportunities from Pochettino to impress and secure a regular place in the starting line-up.
